Keith- in a previous thread (1924 Model T Steering), you had mentioned steering play caused by looseness in the steering quadrant.
I have a '26 steering column that has a good deal of play between the outer quadrant and the inner oval (kinda oval) portion of the column, and causes a wobble in the column as the steering wheel is turned. This looseness causes several inches of play in the steering wheel. There is no play anywhere else in the steering system.
In your experience, what is the best way to permanently stop this play?
Not Keith but, look very close for cracks near the top. On Ralph's hack years ago I welded up seven cracks and ground them smooth. He then re-installed the steering gear to the tube and re-riveted. I always check Ralph's column to make sure it is still good. It was good yesterday as he and I and Ricky did 150+ mile scouting a yet to be announced tour. G
Bill, Gary is right on. I posted a fix for tightening if the column is still in the car and to lazy to pull it like me. If column is out do it like Gary says. Mine was not cracked or I would have pulled it. KGB
